Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars with its review by Scott Yanow stating, "Foster plays in a variety of modern mainstream styles from the era including funk, Latin, a bit of gospel and more straight-ahead. The overall results are not that memorable but they do show Foster growing beyond the world of Count Basie".[2]
